Anyone who's been watching our various FaceBook accounts of late and who are members of our official Elf~Fin page will know that a few days ago we announced the launch of the Elf~Fin™: Hyfus & Tilaweed Preview. Some of you may have already been checking out our "Elf~Fin™ Leaks & Peeks" blog posts over the last 12 months so you're probably familiar with some of the panel art in the interior pages. Well ... at the end of this week we will have 250 freshly printed copies sitting in our office. About 20 will be put away for archival purposes and the rest will be sold. We have orders mounting up already, which we will process from 1 May 2011. We will also be taking copies with us to two Australian literary and zine events in the next three weeks – the Gloucester Writers' Festival and the MCA Zine Fair – so we don't expect the copies to be around for long. This will be your only time to obtain the PREVIEW through our internet site or through the Aussie events, unless you will physically be attending the World Mermaid Awards from 12-13 August 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, for which we will be printing a special MerCon edition. Just so you know, the Preview contains 24 pages of hand-painted artwork by Jozef Szekeres, which comprises the first Act in the first half of the first issue of the first series of Elf~Fin. The only characters our readers will be familiar with are the beloved Hyfus, Tilaweed, Tentus and No~Fin from the work they originally appeared in – ElfQuest: WaveDancers. Beyond that we have NEW characters, a NEW world, NEW rules and a NEW mythology! If you want to read more about it and place your order then go to our new one page Elf~Fin website. You have no idea how excited we are, and also how grateful we are to our readers' enthusiasm for this new work. It's been a long time but we're finally here. The series will be released in its entirely from early 2012!
